Students are required to bring proof of vaccination to their course in order to be permitted to attend. Instructions on how to access proof of vaccination are available for those who have obtained their first-dose and those who are fully-vaccinated.

Course Overview

Our nationally recognised confined space rescue course is designed for anyone who may be required to perform rope-based rescues to extract injured personnel from confined spaces. This training course is taught by experienced emergency services instructors who will perform rescue scenarios that are relevant to your work site. This training course is very hands on with 75% of the time allocated to performing rescue scenarios.

Various types of equipment can be covered depending on the complexity of the types of rescue methods applicable at the site. Training and course subjects will be completely tailored to the requirements of the work site. Following the training course, all competent trainees will be capable of responding to various on-site confined space rescue emergencies.

Pinnacle Safety and Training has built a reputation as a provider or real world rescue skills. The skills taught will be tailored to your workplace requirements and contexts such as:

  • Mine sites
  • Refineries
  • Power stations
  • Ships and vessels etc.

Course Outline

  • Accessing a casualty in a confined space
  • Search and rescue
  • Casualty care
  • Casualty extrication
  • Moving a stretcher in three dimensions
  • Monitor gas atmospheres

Course Inclusions

  • All necessary equipment can be provided (although we encourage you to bring your own)
  • Training conducted by experienced Emergency Services Instructors
  • Plenty of practical hands on training

Prerequisites

  1. You must have attended our Confined Space Entry 1 day program, or hold equivalent competencies (If not, simply attend one of our weekly courses)
  2. You must hold PUAFIR207 ‘Operate breathing apparatus open circuit’ OR MSMWHS216 ‘Operate breathing apparatus’ (If not, enquire about attending our 1 day course prior to this program)
  3. Participants must be clean shaven. The unit of competency demands that students use equipment according to manufacturer’s specifications. The manufacturer’s specifications for breathing apparatus state: “The sealing line between head and facepiece must be free of hair and foreign substances which could cause leakages”. Furthermore, AS 1715 requires users to be clean shaven.

Each Trainee Must Provide

Participants must

  • Be at least 18 years of age

Equipment

  • We can supply all equipment necessary for you to undertake training including harnesses, descenders, breathing apparatus etc.
  • Please contact us to discuss your equipment requirements.
  • We actively encourage you to bring along your own equipment.
  • This training is realistic and very physical. It is important that all personnel who attend this course are willing and capable of moving about in dark, possibly smoky, confined spaces while wearing 15kg breathing apparatus sets.

I would like to say how trainer Steve was a great trainer and top bloke and gave me all the help I needed to get the best out of the course. Great work mate.
